Poster: The Adventures of Tintin

Published on May 16th, 2011

When I was a young boy in France, I used to love reading The Adventures of Tintin based on the work of Belgian artist Hergé. I would never image a film about my favorite detective (sorry Batman, but you’re number  two ) would be made. That’s right, later this year we are going to get a Tintin film.

I am sure this film will bomb in the US. Now thanks to DreamWorks, we have gotten our first official poster for the film. Steven Spielberg handles the directing duties on the initial film, which is set to be followed by a second film helmed by Peter Jackson, who shares producing duties on the films along with Spielberg and Kathleen Kennedy. Jamie Bell provides the voice of Tintin, with Daniel Craig, Andy Serkis, Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, and Toby Jones heading up the rest of the cast. Edgar Wright, Joe Cornish, and Steven Moffat provide the screenplay.
